now for the tips......................

1, If you can see a wind farm quite close by.......................
There's a real good chance its going to be pretty windy.................

2, If the campsite you are staying on is called "Lakefield", and its been raining for a while...........................
Theres a good chance of flooding, or at least real boggy mud just off the track.

We only did a couple of nights on the site, and it was good fun all the same :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Well...the tear looks great!
Glad you had fun anyway!

Probably better if you wait until after they harvest the wind.... :lol:

Tear looks good...what kind of vent is that you have on top? (speaking of "top tips")

Ditto on the roof vent. Looks different.

Thanks for the comments.
The roof vent is a very common standard caravan roof vent over here. :)
They have a five way tilt, so any side can be popped up, or the hole thing can be raised. Even when it's closed you get a small amount of ventilation. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The one I used was salvaged from a donor caravan that was stripped for the teardrop. :D :D
